a couple of days ago we arrived in colorado after many days of travel, family and friends. it is good to be home - in one of our homes, at least. we've been sleeping, reading, gardening and hanging out with my mom. on our travels we went to ohio, the chicago area, northern minnesota and des moines. we were in mn to celebrate my g-ma's 80th birthday and were able to spend time with family we never see. i love minnesota - the lakes and the birch trees and particularly my family's log homes and cabins (not particularly the mosquitoes and deer flies). pictures are below!
